Transitions (curator's edition) is an experimental platform for curators and artists at Newlyn Art Gallery. Andy Whall & Delpha Hudson have worked as Art surgery curating performance and live art in the SW for over 10 years.
They have also worked individually as visual and performance artists. In That's Entertainment, Hudson & Whall work together for the first time, ostensibly to 'entertain'.
There is intentional irony in the working title,
and making an installation/set, and a rich,
engaging show in 4 days, even with the help of clown Mr B, a stack of research and ideas, and a live musician, was doomed to failure. Nonetheless they flirted with theatre, risk and disappointment, juggling writing, directing, devising, curating and improvising.
The final show of That’s Entertainment, had majestically flawed performances, huge holes in narrative, content and form, yet was beautifully stupid and edgy.
It exists here as a game that was played with Brett Jackson our clown, Graham Gaunt our musician, helpful audiences, and gorgeously represented by film-maker.
